. >> caller: listen, i'm so curious as to why we haven't seen the faces of john mccain and lindsey graham and their outrage over loss of american lives that he with saw for the last three months. they have been conspicuously an scent from -- absent from tv. >> stephanie: you mean the connecticut tragedy? >> yes. they've not said a word about these 26 wonderful people that lost their lives. >> stephanie: "meet the press" said they asked 31 pro gun legislators to appear and no one would come on. >> they're all hiding. for huckabee and the other gentleman you spoke of that said if god was a gentleman every profile of the kids and their families had any say about -- they were all very active in their churches. they did have god in their lives and i can't understand why they think their excuse from his protection just because they were in school that day. >> stephanie: absolutely. good point. let's go to scott in pasadena. >> caller: hi, there. a quick question for you that why is it that gun owners aren't willing to -- c
of vitt real susan rice suffered after the television aappearances from john mccain and lindsey graham was disproportionate. she said stuff which she knew the intelligence was counter to and gets the briefings. the one that was responsible was hillary clinton at the head of the state department when it comes to the security. i think that it does go, though, to this broader issue of the administration's counterterrorism success or lack of success, because i think there was the fact that they were not looking at the deteriorating overall situation in libya shows they're only looking at individual attacks and suggests that they're not taking the whole picture of where al qaeda still is in communities. it's still there in libya. it's in mali. it's growing in syria. that kind runs against the message that we get orage the ws to put out it has had a successful run against counterterrorism because of the drone strikes. if you start to see al qaeda and libya and all the other countries, you have to start to question whether the policy is successful, right? >> all right. we'll be following this
is bipartisan. so people like lindsey graham and john mccain know him and respect him. so i think he will breeze through the confirmation. >> well, with that, i want to play a sound bite of both those two senators that you just mentioned, their reaction today to the choice. here it is. >> we have known john kerry for many years. we have confidence in john kerry's ability to carry out the job. >> i think senator kerry was a very solid choice by the president. he has a lot of experience. he has been on the foreign relations committee for a very long time. he knows most of the world leaders. >> the susan rice/benghazi witch-hunt, what is your reaction to that? >> well, keep in mind john kerry is barack obama's first choice. susan rice wasn't a choice. she got tied up into the politics of benghazi. but this is who the president likes, believes in. kerry gave obama that great nominating speech slot in 2004. but kerry has been able to be bipartisan in the true sense. he has been able to cut deals and work with senators -- senator murkowski is a friend of his from alaska, for example. this is going to
state, voted against it. lindsey graham cast a no vote though john mccain was one of the treaty's biggest advocates. kelly ayotte voted for it. mississippi senator thad cochrane voted in favor and then as it was going down switched his vote to no. cochrane up in 2014. mississippi more worried about a primary than a general. this is one of of the saddest days i've seen in almost 28 years in the senate. and it needs to be a wake-up call about a broken institution that's letting down the american people. the g 0 op divide was on full display yesterday in both chambers. so was the republican attempt to move past the losses in 2012. there was a tribute to honor the late jack kemp. two men who had their eye on 2016. congressman paul ryan and marco rubio laid out their visions for expanding the appeal to the middle class. clear from the outset that the night was about moving past mitt romney. ryan welcomed rubio to the dinner, by the way, by joking about potential early state r run-ins the two of them may have ahead of them. >> i'll see you at the reunion can dinner for two. notice any
lindsey graham and john mccain, her two fiercest critics. she then met with senator susan collin a moderate. she also came out of the meeting saying, i actually have more questions now than i did before. so if you couldn't get the moderate republican to vote for you for secretary of state, the writing was probably on the wall. >> brian: what i thought was totally out of bounds with andrea mitchell said yesterday in her evaluation and analyzing what this means in terms of politics with her backing out, she brought up the gender factor and the race factor. listen. >> i think that this had become sort of an impossible challenge for her to be confirmed. she realized that. the white house realized it as well. i think they know that they are on good political, solid ground, as you were pointing out. this is not going to heparins at all, the fact that a woman and a woman of color has been forced out of the confirmation process before she was nominated. >> gretchen: nothing to do with it. >> steve: look, it was george w bush, a republican, who placed in the job of secretary of state a wo
senator kelly ayotte along with her fellow senators, lindsey graham and john mccain in a fairly blistering assessment of the report that came out from the accountability review board on what happened in benghazi. and we have a couple of experts here who can talk about what she is senators had to say just now. judy miller, fox news contribute tore, who has made many, many trips reporting to that part of the world. rick grenell, spokesman for four u.s. ambassadors to the united nations. in particular senator graham suggested, i mean he was asking the question, essentially, what did the president know and when did he know it? there are some real questions to be asked raised by this report, this accountability review board report about what happened in benghazi. >> yeah. we were taking notes. i think actually the headline for me was that secretary clinton may have not sat for interviews for this report. senator graham was questioning whether or not she actually was interviewed. if that's the case, jon, that's outrageous that we have a sitting secretary of state who said, i take responsibility
not bode well for the trial balloon of chalk .eguck hagel we have seen john mccain say they are going to vote for him. chuck hagel has been questioned by a number of republicans. lindsey graham is considered a more moderate republican. there is a concern with hagel and the pro-israel lobby. they tried engagement with iran for the first year of the administration and went to the toughest sanctions in history. hagel has been an opponent of those sanctions. if he changed his view, i think that would improve his chances. look at where he is on the foreign policy debate. obama has taken positions that are more to the center than hagel. host: if senator kerry becomes secretary of state, what does he bring? guest: john kerry will have to navigate the new relationship with political islam. as countries open up more and become more democratic, part is affiliated with the muslim brotherhood will have so far done very well. we're just at the beginning of the kind of new face with political is long. the united states has had a relationship with the muslim brotherhood for 100 years. that is often
